Hi, there's any option to export Confluence syntax from Marked 2 with source document coming from Ulysses on Mac? Thanks

    Probably not. You can make Confluence syntax input preview properly with
    a custom script, but the Markdown export option would return the input
    document with slight formatting changes (fixes) that would probably be
    incompatible. There's no way to modify the export to translate Markdown
    input to Confluence.

    I've found two scripts for convert from Ulysses markdown to Confluence, and back:

    1. Install NodeJS from https://nodejs.org/
    2. sudo for both https://www.npmjs.com/package/markdown2confluence
    3. sudo for https://www.npmjs.com/package/confluence2markdown
    4. symbolic link in /usr/local/bin to shorten the commands

    And ultimately, no conversion is required, actually :)

    From the Confluence page https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Wiki+Markup:

    <em>Can I insert markdown?</em>
    Confluence supports inserting content in markdown. This is often used in ReadMe files. See Markdown syntax guide for some examples of markdown syntax.

    To insert markdown in the editor:

    Choose Insert > Markup
    Select Markdown
    Type or paste your text - the preview will show you how it will appear on your page
    Choose Insert.
